Saturday night, Chris and I saw Cavalia, a gorgeous horse show created by Normand Latourelle, the co-founder of the Cirque du Soleil. It was a breathtakingly beautiful spectacle of arial dancers, horses, acrobats and performers all housed under a big top set up in Pentagon City in Arlington.
The staging was fantastical, at different points it snowed, it rained, pools appeared and disappeared on the stage and at one point moving white horses were projected on a giant curtain of water. But the most awe inspiring part of the show were the horses themselves.
They danced, leapt, reared and spun, all in perfect tandem with their human counterparts.
